Master Vintner Limited Edition 2016: La Vie Cabernet Sauvignon PRE-ORDER

SKU: 43155

La Vie Cabernet Sauvignon (with grapeskins):
Intense, tannic, powerful, with hidden depths that are revealed by cellaring.

This wine features great extract, deep colour and intense dark berry fruit, cassis, peppery spice, cedar and smoke. The nose foreshadows blueberries, liquorice, vanilla and silky tannins and a velvety smooth structure to go with its full-body.

Drank early it will show off its fruit, but the character will be dominated by its intense tannic structure. Cellaring for a least a year will bring out the smooth, full tannins, along with pepper, cedar and spice. It will improve for at least 2 years and hold for another three, gaining richness as it goes.

The Region: Bordeaux

master vintner bordeaux wineIf vintners and merchants worked together to custom design the ideal wine region, they would produce Bordeaux. Nestled in a natural crossroads between land, river and sea in the Southwest of France, the mild climate and well-drained soil provide the perfect environment for growing the three big grapes of Bordeaux -- Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s actually Bordeaux’s unique location that influenced how these grapes came to be made into wine. As a major shipping port since ancient times, Bordeaux was host to the world’s very first trade expositions. And that bred a culture of clever merchants who realized that if the grapes were vinified separately and then ‘assembled’ within a few months of fermentation, they could guarantee a steady supply of wines with consistent character…even in years with challenging weather. Voilà…The complex, engaging character of Bordeaux wines was born!

The Wine: La Vie Cabernet Sauvignon (with grapeskins)

This intense, tannic, powerful red with sumptuous blackberry and cherry notes will show off its fruit if you drink it early. But cellaring for at least a year will bring out the smooth, full tannins, along with nippy cedar, minty and peppery depths. It will improve for at least 2 years and hold for another three, gaining richness as it goes. Up to eight or ten years in very good storage conditions. Absolutely worth the wait.

Cabernet Sauvignon works better with oak than any other red wine, and needs big food to match.
